High School Transcript Self-Report of Grades

Students have the opportunity to self-report their transcript information which Acadia will use to assess admission to degree programs. High school applicants must report all academic grade 11 and grade 12 courses along with all available mid-year or final grades. Information provided will be automatically assessed and applicants will be advised of their admissibility to Acadia.

Offers of admission based on self-reported transcript information will be verified with the final official transcript from your high school. You should arrange for your final transcript to be sent to Acadia at the end of June. All applicants must have self-reported their course information accurately and must maintain their academic admission average in their final results, otherwise the offer of admission may be withdrawn.

Early fall admission

Students who have Senior 3 average of at least 75% may be considered for early fall admission before their first set of Senior 4 marks is available.  Students applying for early fall admission should include their final Senior 3 marks and a school-approved list of courses they are taking in Senior 4 (both semesters) with their application. Senior 4 courses must be consistent with the guidelines listed above.
